Bear + Bunny
The smallest bunny, kicked away|
Each burrow turns its back.
To lick its wounds alone, it hides
Beneath the world’s cracks.
But Bunny finds there is no peace
Under rock nor up a tree
Always feet that kick so hard
Nowhere to find sanctuary.
One day Bunny idly strolls
Into the path of a giant bear.
Trembling, Bunny tries to run
But bear picks it up and strokes one ear.
“Do not be scared cute baby rabbit,
I promise I will protect you.”
And Bunny smiles and snuggles close
As they admire the morning dew.
So Bear and Bunny fall in love
And though a Fairytale it is not
Their hearts are true, their souls entwined
Tied forever in a happy, gentle knot.
Visit the Bunny :)
